The Sound of Young America was in Alberta, Canada for the Calgary Folk Music Festival, four days of performances and workshops from folk, indie, rock, country, and blues musicians. Before the festival, we talked to the headliner Roberta Flack for a new feature on the show, “The Song That Changed My Life.”
Roberta Flack is a legendary singer, songwriter and pianist. She won back-to-back Grammy Awards for Record of the Year for her songs “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Killing Me Softly With His Song.”
